Battery Huger (ũ-jẽ) looms before you. Battery Huger, the black, concrete structure filling the center of Fort Sumter, was built in 1899 in response to the Spanish-American War. Named for Revolutionary War hero Isaac Huger, the battery was part of a seacoast defense system that protected Charleston Harbor. By 1945 installations like Battery Huger were obsolete, and Fort Sumter was transferred to the National Park Service.
